It has been a delight to be doing the Tours again at Strawbale Studio!
During the 2 hours, folks can ask lots of questions as we inhabit the many places and spaces here: The Hobbit Sauna, Middle Earth, Kid’s Cottage, and get to see the Skill Building, Rocket Stoves, Rumford Fireplaces, Earth Oven, Thatching demo frame, and of course, the Strawbale Studio!

August 4, 2022 VISIT & TOUR
Dana Driscoll is in town, staying with Linda Jackson and they visit! We toured the land and buildings a bit, while catching up with each others lives and activities. Dana is developing many natural living projects with her partner on land in Pennsylvania. She gifted me her book Sacred Action & also cards that share the some of the amazing qualities of nature. Linda, who co-hosts the Oakland County Permaculture Meetup, has a most lovely Permaculture Garden in her front yard. A treat to connect!
August 13, 2022 LEARNING TOUR Nina, who has participated in natural building experiences during her travels, brought her parents, so they could get a chance to see and feel first-hand some of what she has learned to love. She has studied plants and has a beautiful website about permaculture, foraged foods & more. It was wonderful to get to know them all, and we are hoping for future connections.
August 14, 2022 LEARNING TOUR Diedre also has traveled, and taken part in natural building in a variety of ways, brought her Peeps…mom and some long-time friends & their teenage grand daughter …. on a Learning Tour! It was delightful to experience their observations, field questions, and share details about the buildings & projects here, while seeing this place through their curious, perceptive eyes!
